3.0 out of 5 stars Decent album!, 15 Nov 2005
This review is from: Vheissu (Audio CD)
Ok, this album is different from their previous outputs. I'm glad that Thrice is trying to take their sound in a new direction, since 2003's "The Artist In The Ambulance" was a little too poppy and uninspired (yet still good!) for my tastes. Vheissu is a lot darker and more atmospheric than before. It is clear that they are trying to redefine themselves in their artistry. This new take on their sound is very evident on "The Earth Will Shake", "Atlantic", "For Miles" and "Like Moths To Flame" for example, and these songs blew me away. However it seems they are afraid of straying too far into new territory, as most other tracks seem to borrow from the "TAITA" sound. This isn't necessarily something bad since that album had some rockin' tunes, but you are left feeling like Vheissu could have been something much more than it is. This is definatly a solid album and worth the money, especially if you're a Thrice fan like myself. It seems like Thrice could go anywhere from this album, which is a positive thing. Bands should evolve in my opinion. Vheissu is a good effort, but hopefully next time Thrice will have the guts to go all the way. This album is worth about 4 stars, but I'm left hoping for more, so it gets a 3. Can't wait for their next installment after this one!
